University Choirs Prepare For Upcoming Year

This January, Truman’s Cantoria will sing an invited performance at the 74th Missouri Music Educators Association Conference at Tan-Tar-A Resort.

“It is a great honor to be chosen to perform. I am thankful for the dedication and talents of our students and faculty members, who helped make this possible,” said Mark Jennings, associate professor of music and director of the choir.

The group, which was chosen for the conference through a blind application process, is an auditioned choir of 60 singers that meets Monday through Friday at 12:30 p.m.

Truman’s Chamber Choir, led by incoming graduate students Christopher Thomas and Mark Woodcock, will prepare and present the seventh annual Madrigal Dinner Dec. 2-3. The Chamber Choir is an auditioned ensemble of about 26 singers.

The University Chorus, Truman’s large, non-auditioned ensemble, will perform Vivaldi’s “Gloria,” Eric Whitacre’s “Five Hebrew Love Songs” and works by Menachem Wiesenberg and André Thomas. In the spring, the choir will present a concert with the University Orchestra.

Students interested in participating in any of the choirs can contact Jennings at or 785.4443.
